The newest chapter in the Star Wars saga is coming out in a few days! Star Wars first appeared in theaters May 25, 1977 – thirty eight years ago! When it first came out, no one suspected what a huge impact it would have!
Since 1977 five more feature films – The Force Awakens makes it six! – and a wealth of other creations including books, television series, computer and video games, and comic books, resulting in significant development of the series’s fictional universe.
And let’s not forget the toys, including LEGOs, costumes, clothing, linens, home decor; fan groups, cosplay, fanzines, conventions – as above, an entire fictional universe.
And you can find many books, DVDs, and BluRay movies at the Alameda County Library.
